Hook, or wrap, move where a leg or arm wraps around another part of the body.
Hooks were well-established in breaking by the early 1980s. Arm hooks, while a component of the spider, may have been introduced into footwork only in the mid-1980s with Mr. Wiggles' "spiderman footwork" . Hooks and sweeps were further developed in Europe in the 1980s and 1990s (e.g. by members of Aktuel Force, Battle Squad, and Throwdown Rockers) . According to Storm, Battle Squad would combine hooks, where the body becomes small, with bigger steps in a style called "hook & sling" (Haken und Ösen) .
